The Mandalorian opened up the live-action series umbrella of Star Wars in a massive way. The Jon Favreau-created project left its own mark in the eyes of both fans and critics, garnering Emmy nominations and outstanding reviews along the way.

The series follows the adventures of a lone bounty hunter, Din Djarin, as he sets off in an adventure to protect The Child, most famously known by fans as Baby Yoda . The unique storyline of the show sets it apart from other Star Wars projects, and it quickly catapulted the show into greater heights. In conjunction with that, a key part of the show's success is the scoring led by renowned composer, Ludwig Göransson.

Göransson's soundtrack is front and center during The Mandalorian 's debut season. It even received its own music video which featured an in-depth behind-the-scenes look at Göransson's work for the show. And now, another exclusive release revolving around The Mandalorian 's soundtrack has surfaced.

REPORT

In a report from The Rolling Stones , it was revealed that Göransson's soundtrack from the first season of The Mandalorian will be released as "a massive and limited edition 8-LP vinyl box set via Mondo." This will mark the first physical release of the season one soundtrack.

The vinyl box set, which is titled as The Mandalorian: Season One , will only be limited to just 3,500 copies.

Each of the eight chapters, pressed on 180-gram vinyl, is housed in its own jacket featuring original artwork by Paul Mann. The entire 8-LP set is also housed in a heavy-duty slipcase adorned with the titular Mandalorian’s mudhorn Signet.

Mondo Creative Director of Music Mo Shafeek expressed his excitement ahead of the release of the vinly set by sharing his admiration for the "chameleon-like ability" of Göransson when it comes to scoring multiple genres:

“It’s no longer a secret that Ludwig Göransson is the most talented and exciting person working in film and television music right now. But what goes unspoken is his chameleon-like ability to play within multiple genres, even within single cues of his songwriting for the screen. His music for films like Creed and Black Panther showcase not only his collaborative nature, but also his relationship to pop and hip hop, as well as blending untraditional instrumentation with traditional orchestras. His score for The Mandalorian is similarly masterful in its ability to be wildly experimental while never feeling out of place – like a synth spaghetti western score that feels inspired in equal parts to Ennio Morricone, John Williams and Hans Zimmer, while also never feeling like a pastiche. We are honored to be the home for this complete score.”

WHAT THIS MEANS

Göransson's soundtrack helped The Mandalorian achieve the right tone and feel throughout its inaugural season run. That said, this vinyl set should give the fans an opportunity to relive some of the season's best moments in a unique way.

The limited edition vinyl box set not only includes the actual score, but it also features eight different artwork pieces that highlight various moments of the show's first season. In any case, the inclusion of these captivating works of art provides fans with another reminder of the unprecedented success of the show.

The sophomore season of The Mandalorian is just around the corner, and it is expected that more of Göransson's work will be featured. This presents an opportunity for the composer to further experiment on different musical arrangements while staying true to the core theme of the hit Star Wars series.
